Long Day's Journey into Night was written in 1940 but not staged until 1956, after O'Neil's death. Unashamedly autobiographical, it is, as he puts it himself in the dedicatory note, 'a play of old sorrow, written in tears and blood', a harrowing attempt to understand himself and his family.

Industry Reviews

"Why do we continue to find Eugene O'Neill's family drama so moving? Partly because the play draws so closely on the author's own experience... [but] what also grips us is the tension between O'Neill's tight classical structure and the surging contradictions of family life" * Guardian * "Harrowing... the dramatic impact is shattering... The passage in which he describes his dirt-poor childhood is overpoweringly moving" * Daily Telegraph * "O'Neill keeps control with dry humour. This is an acute study of the behavioural ruts as well as the mercurial complexity of family relationships" * Independent * "Epic... a tale of monstrously corrupted intimacy" * Herald *
